of the last candidate for president, mitt romney. but the thing that struck me the most about mitt romney's speech, which was his first major public appearance since losing the presidency, of the part at the end of his speech where he talked about the iraq war. he described the iraq war as a war of liberation. we fought the iraq war to liberate the iraqi people from tyranny. the iraq war was supposedly to get saddam hussein's weapons of mass destruction and the nuclear weapons he was going to set off. we were going into that war to stop him from giving those biological and chemical weapons to the terrorists that they told us he was working with in al qaeda. that's why they told us we had to go to war in iraq. that's what they told us about why we had to have that war. none of it was true. ten years ago when we invaded iraq, we were told it was all about 9/11, that if we didn't go invade iraq, that the next attack by the same people would be a nuclear attack. a chemical weapons talk or a nuclear attack. the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship
romney's advisers said a transition from primary season to the general election campaign was almost like an etch a sketch? you can kind of shake it up and start all over again. well, enter romney's opponents giving new life to what i thought had become a forgotten children's toy. >> imagine had mitt romney been around at the time we were drafting our constitution? he'd have just shaken it and just shook it up after to rewrite it. >> given everything people have said about governor romney's flip-flops over the years, this was sort of capturing what everybody was afraid of. in a way we probably ought to thank his communications director for telling the truth. >> finally, minnesota senator al franken made transition from comedy to politics he left funny stuff behind to take on serious issues. still the two worlds of al franken merged when he rattled off a list of potentially dangerous consequences of not raising the debt ceiling back in 2011. >> no federal government employees, including counterterrorism agents, in the fbi, for example, no border agents. now, before we default, we could hav
his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say, what did we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- >> you do not buy that? >> certainly i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to loo
yesterday on cnn that romney's anti-immigration comments hurt the party. watch. >> one of the issues that i think really cut pretty badly within the hispanic community is when mitt romney talked about self-deportation. and, you know, it's a concept that really doesn't -- it's not our party's position. but it was something that i think hit every hispanic kitchen table across america. >> but i just want to tell you that he's wrong. it is the party's position. because if you read the party's platform, it says -- this is a direct quote from the republican party platform that was voted on and approved by the gop in august. quote, we will create human procedures to encourage illegal aliens to return home voluntarily. sounds like self-deportation to me. but i'm going to have to leave it there, unfortunately. i want to thank nia-malika henderson and margie omera for your time tonight. >>> ahead, rush says the gop is being suckered into changing. pop some popcorn, folks. the gop civil war is getting good. >>> plus, republican leaders tell a whopper about who the party is really working for. that's n
-huh. >> the brothers plan to have the transplant at oakland's children's hospital in mid- april. >>> mitt romney is set to host a retreat in utah this summer. according to reports the former republican presidential candidate has sent out e-mail invitations to a number of politicians, business leaders, and donors. the cost of attending the sefntdz 5,000. the retreat is sponsored by romney's son's investment firm. it is said to give business executives and politicians a chance to network with each other. >>> bo obama is a wanted dog. let me show you some video posted on youtube. this is from the oregon humane society. in it, one of their dogs, a golden doodle named ramona asked bo to be her date to the society's annual doggy dash fund-raiser. it is being held in may. the humane society is also asking bo to serve as grand marshal for that event. so far no word back from bo or the white house. >>> this afternoon san francisco zoo's newest tiger cub is making her first public appearance. she has yet to be named. she is daughter to leanne and larry. today and tomorrow she is going to be on display in the zoo
the terrorists acting out. romney didn't feel that situation that well with his press conference he called it at the wrong time about the guy that runs the entire foreign policy apparatus in the united states. it really does seem he used to say that a reporter is someone else that will sell his soul for a good story but it took turns out when the story might make barack obama look bad or make his presidency looks like a failure they are going to miss stories by definition simply for the inability to see the failure to be interested .... on the editorial page recovered the way that i wanted to be covered if i have anyone to blame but myself. we are part of who we are as the washington examiner but we also there is no reason that we should be the only ones to be ill-defined obvious trends in the labor statistics that we were practically the ones to write about people seem unaware of of the economy. 25 to
campuses at all but admitted romney was criticized for ignoring polish voters and writing them off. >> guest: when you go to young voters and reach out you have a chance to reach out but this is one the most fascinating things of the campaign that was very under covered by he ran a program in iowa geared at a high-school students because you can vote in the primary if you are 17 and will be 18 for the general so he went to the high schools targeting high school seniors who were 17 years old to engage them and that is one of the reasons he won the iowa caucus because of the unprecedented the engagement of the 17 year-old high-school 17 drones a year identified. >> host: we are never too early what does a democrat running what do they need to keep in mind while targeting this particular generation? >> this generation wants to hear a positive message and wants to be brought to the table because they have been put on the chopping block and we have been left out and i've loved to see them engaging more young people in their campaigns. young people always work on campaign spent more peop
's development, though, is fascinating. >> it is. i wonder if it played a role in his -- in mitt romney's campaign. i think it might have. >>> next week, the supreme court will consider a challenge to laws that outlaw same-sex marriage. >> actually, i don't think it did. i don't think the romney team wanted to win ohio. >> the woman running -- >> if they'd selected rob portman, they'd win ohio. who wants to win ohio? >> just 1 of 50. >> too constructive. >> ran this selection process, not only said it didn't play a role, but she herself has come out in support of gay marriage. >> who? >> beth myers who ran the selection process. >> but she didn't make the decisions, ran the process. >> she was influential. >> all right. >>> coming up on "morning joe." i'm just telling you -- >> what are you telling us? >> shortsightedness ran that campaign and that would have been it. >> and where can i meet them? >> he's over there with samsung. the end of power players, how the little guys are making waves on the global stage. so let's break down this play. charles? uh, charles couldn't make it. his s
there in a balanced approach for deficit reduction. where the republicans, it was the same thing that romney ryan were proposing before. talk about lessons learned. they may have learned some lessons on immigration reform. they're totally stuck in their own mud when it comes to the budget. >> on the sequester, it seems that for all intents and purposes that will continue to be the law of the land. we're going to pass a government funding bill out of congress. hopefully by the end of this week to avert a government shutdown on march 27th. you mentioned on the conference call two days ago that there really, or yesterday, rather, there's probably no, there's nothing to avert the sequester or replace it, unless there's a large-scale agreement put in place by perhaps the president and speaker boehner by august. is that the truth? should americans really feel that the sequester is here to stay? at least through the rest of this fiscal year? >> well, yeah, there two questions there. unfortunately, it looks like it's here to stay, at least for the coming weeks. and the issue will be, whether sometime between
't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things get difficult. and that's a difficult list. >> people assume that iran may be overshadowing this trip, in a sense, syria has overtaken even iran because of the suggestion that chemical weapons have been used, both sides trying to blame the other side. what do we really know about what may have happened here? >> reporter: n
at all. mitt romney and that campaign was criticized for largely avoiding college voters and maybe sort of giving up on them and writing them off. >> guest: yeah. i think that history is when you actually go to young street voters and reach out to them you have a chance of getting their vote. barack obama in 2008 -- one of the fascinating things about his campaign was that he actually rap a program in iowa, geared on high school students called barack stars because in iowa you can vote in the primary if you're 17 and will be 18 in the general. so he went to all these high schools targeting high school seniors and juniors who were 17 and engaging them and that is one of the reasons he actually won the iowa caucus is because of this unprecedented engagement on the part of 17-year-old high school students which he identified as a potential audience. >> host: will wishes 2016 on the horizon -- >> guest: never too early. >> host: what does a democrat running, let's say it's hillary clinton -- or a republican running -- let's say it's chris christie, for example -- what do they need to keep i
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
that what mitt romney, while he was running was trying to sell white conservatives to african-americans when he spoke before the naacp. and i wanted to ask the congressman that somehow through this effort somehow white conservatives could relate to people of color. i doubt that him go-around would try to sell the idea of conservatives to -- black -- ervatives to guest: the conservative elements don't just stop with the whites or blacks or anyone. again, i think my main job so represent my constituents and in doing that, if i talk to everyone, i find that it's not so much about policies, philosophies, and theologies, it's trying to understand what people's problems are today and seeing if we can work our way through them, that to me seems to be more compelling than being in a philosophical drive. again, my district is 34% republicans so we have a broad base. i think one of the most important things we can do is balance out those voters in every district that 70% districts they are never going to have to work very hard. i have to work very hard, and frankly i like that. and i think that's what
and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value over volume, to be able to extend care and do so more efficiently and squeeze the approximately one-third to 40%
as mitt romney's etch a sketch did. yesterday when bloomberg was interviewed, he said that this was a way for him to educate people and in these red states where i live in south georgia, we don't need the education from michael bloomberg about our guns, rights to guns. most are in favor of some type of backgrund checks. in georgia, to have a carry permit, you have one. the devil is in the details. i'm not confident in eric holder and the department of justice to implement laws, new laws on the books when he won't even enforce the current gun laws on the books. >> so does patrick have something here that mayor bloomberg's reputation as a guy who runs a nanny state or tries to, does he really have any sway over people who are on the fence? >> this is a political red herring. oh, this week it's michael bloomberg and it used to be nancy pelosi and it used to be barack obama. you can use all the scary liberal names, but the reality on the ground, police who don't tend to vote democratic, even police are in favor of what the mayors are suggesting. michael bloomberg maying t be t face, but he's
's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten
against president obama and partly a factor in governor romney running. .hat is an interesting dynamic at our potential field, there is a lot of young, fresh faces in the republican party. i think it would be very healthy. if you look at marco rubio, paul ryan, kelly ayotte, bobby jindal. very clear generational shift going on in the republican party moving forward. the democrats look like they might reach back. jackie's -- john kasick's numbers have been rising dramatically. i suspect you will see that with other governors as a welter it -- s well. that onlineatch at c-span dot org. c-span.org. coming up, president obama visits the west bank and jerusalem. then we will talk about the federal budget. journal,xt washington a look at the gun-control debate and the possibility of an assault weapons ban. discussion that revealed 32 members of congress hired relative to work other campaigns during the 2012 elections. -- parry toerry discuss thithe latest population trends. washington journal, live at 7:00 eastern on c-span. box is a price to be issued by a grade -- >> a surprise to be issue
